Abstract:Workflow management systems (WfMSs) are useful tools for
bioinformaticians. As experiences with using WfMSs accumulate, shortcomings of current systems become apparent. In this paper, we focus on practical issues that hinder WfMS users and that arise in the design and execution of workflows, and in access of web services. We present e-BioFlow, a workflow engine that demonstrates in which way a number of these problems can be solved. e-BioFlow offers an improved user interface, can deal with large data volumes, stores all provenance, and has a powerful provenance browser. e-BioFlow also offers the possibility to design and run workflows step by step, allowing its users an explorative research style.
